Lauren Wilson- Higher Apprenticeship in IT
Name: Lauren Wilson
Company: Capgemini UK plc
Apprenticeship: Higher Apprenticeship in IT
Training provider: QA
A Higher Apprenticeship was ideal as I have always had a keen interest in ICT and wanted to gain work experience whilst studying at the same time. I found out about apprenticeships through college and came across the Capgemini Higher Apprenticeship programme, which I thought was a fantastic opportunity and well suited for me.
I love the fact that I am gaining so much work experience and constantly learning new things every day. I am currently working on specialising in testing for a data warehouse, however the programme also lets me experience many different aspects of Capgemini, as I can move on to different roles in the near future.
Also, while working towards a qualification, you also grow as a person. Since starting this apprenticeship my confidence has grown and I have proved to myself that I can achieve great results by putting in the effort. It’s very challenging but worth it.
When I finish this apprenticeship, I will only be 23 years old and have 5 years work experience with a degree and no student debt. So I think it is definitely a good way to get your ‘foot in the door’.
